After the success of its inaugural competition in 2012, Awlgrip has announced the call for entries to their Future Interior Designer competition. Aiming to discover new superyacht interior designers, the competition asks entrants to create innovative designs using new materials and producing ergonomic and easy to build interiors. The competition is open to second- and third-year design students, students who have graduated within the past 12 months and those who have started in new interior design positions within the past 24 months. The winning designer will receive a cash prize of $7,500 and the chance to showcase their work at the 2013 Monaco and Fort Lauderdale boat shows as part of Awlgrip’s 40th anniversary celebrations.
The challenge is to produce a design that the judges will conclude is the best looking, most ergonomic, easiest to build and features the most innovative use of the new Awlgrip products. This can be as straightforward as a storage or vanity unit, something more technically challenging such as a crew workspace, or even a solution for where the aesthetic ideal meets engineering constraints such as a bridge console.
